Raise Virginias Minimum Wage

Workers deserve a living wage

The cost of goods and services continue to rise as wages remain stagnant for workers. The minimum wage is not a "starter wage" as it's opponents like to characterize it as. It is a poverty wage which keeps too many workers having to work multiple jobs just to survive. Often times having to rely on high-interest payday loans to make ends meet. Workers should be able to make enough at one full-time job to survive.

We need a living wage of at least $15 per hour.
